Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz is officially being activated from IR. He injured a finger on his throwing hand in October of 2022, and has remained on injured reserve since then. Wentz will return to the team in a backup role.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news on Monday.
Wentz was the second overall draft pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He remained an Eagle for five years before being traded twice; once to the Colts in 2021 and then to the Commanders in 2022.
While he went down 2017 in the midst of a potential MVP season, the Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots. This earned Wentz a Super Bowl ring, despite his inability to play in the game.
